My name is Valerie Carr and I am a professional watercolour artist and textile/embroidery designer.
My fabrics are digitally printed from my watercolours and often embellished with delicate hand embroidery. I like to create atmosphere by combining colours, textures and stitches and I'm very much in tune with the contemporary slow stitch embroidery movement. I love the organic, 'no rules' ethos and meditative aspect of slow stitching and, at the same time, I am completely in awe of the knowledge and skills that have been passed down over the centuries by a wealth of talented traditional embroiderers.
